About Silverback Therapeutics™
Silverback Therapeutics is a privately held biopharmaceutical company advancing a pipeline of therapies that are systemically delivered, but locally active and target fundamental disease pathways. Silverback’s ImmunoTAC™ technology is a targeted therapy platform designed to promote local modulation of important biologic pathways which enables innovative therapeutic approaches for oncology, virology, and fibrosis. Silverback’s lead candidate, SBT6050, is a novel immuno-oncology therapeutic comprised of a TLR8 specific agonist (a potent activator of myeloid cells) conjugated to a HER2-directed monoclonal antibody. Solid tumors, including those resistant to T cell targeted immunotherapy, are replete with myeloid cells. Activation and reprogramming of myeloid cells drives an innate immune response resulting in direct tumor killing and can also nucleate a T cell response. Successful activation of myeloid cells can lead to anti-tumor immunity, even in tumors that are resistant to immune checkpoint blockade. Clinical investigation of SBT6050 is expected to begin in 2H 2020. Silverback Therapeutics is located in Seattle, Washington. To learn more, visit www.silverbacktx.com.
